~* HOW SWEET THE HOUR *~
Fanny Crosby, 1820-1915

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Revelation 21:3

Fanny Crosby is perhaps the best known hymn-writer of all time. Blinded in a medical accident as a child, she spent her entire life praising her God and Saviour in poetry.

This particular hymn caught my eye and touched my heart a year and a half ago (2001) when I discovered it...and that the words were to the tune "Auld Lang Syne", the traditional New Year's song. What a beautiful thing to focus on what we have to look forward to when our friends know Jesus as Saviour...a land where we'll never say "goodbye". PRAISE GOD!!!!!



How sweet the hour of praise and prayer
When our devotions blend,
And on the wings of faith divine
Our songs of joy ascend!
'Tis then we hear in tones more clear
The gracious promise giv'n
That, though we part from friends on Earth,
The saved shall meet in Heav'n!

We all shall meet in Heav'n at last,
We all shall meet in Heav'n!
Through faith in Jesus' precious blood,
We all shall meet in Heav'n!

How sweet the tie of hallowed love
That binds our hearts in one;
When gathered in the blessed Name
Of Christ, the Father's Son!
And though the parting soon may come,
Yet in His Word is giv'n
The blessed hope that by and by
The saved shall meet in Heav'n!

We all shall meet in Heav'n at last,
We all shall meet in Heav'n!
Through faith in Jesus' precious blood,
We all shall meet in Heav'n!



*For Today*: Revelation 21 & 22

As you look back over the past year and look forward to the coming year, remember what is important...focus on THINGS ETERNAL!!
